[Recommended Read / Manhwa Review] Dungeon Break With A Female Lead: I Stole the Number One Ranker’s Soul

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting I’ve been reading a lot of dungeon break comics lately, and I’m really enjoying the genre in manhwas. The art style, which emphasizes clean lines, lighting, and shadows, is reminiscent of Jang-Sung Rak’s work in Solo Leveling. The majority of these comics focus primarily on action, with romance taking a back seat, if it appears at all. However, I … Continue reading [Recommended Read / Manhwa Review] Dungeon Break With A Female Lead: I Stole the Number One Ranker’s Soul

Muffy: Will You Give Her A Wonderful Life?

By: Casea Smith | @coffeewithkrow On one fateful Christmas day, I got Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life. This was not only the first farming simulator I ever played but also the first game I had ever played that allowed (or, in this case, required) you to marry someone. It was revolutionary to me as a child, and it opened my mind to a new way … Continue reading Muffy: Will You Give Her A Wonderful Life?

A Better Bookworm: Bibliophile Princess [Short Review/Recommendation]

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Back in April, I wrote a post criticizing Ascendance of a Bookworm‘s main character, Myne, for liking bookmaking or the idea of reading rather than actual books. I stand by that statement still, as I feel like most of the series is still more about Myne and an isekai journey to being the greatest protagonist than it is about … Continue reading A Better Bookworm: Bibliophile Princess [Short Review/Recommendation]

To get closer to him, she becomes a ballet student at his school and transforms into Princess Tutu to retrieve shards of his heart. She … Continue reading Princess Tutu: Rewriting Your Narrative

Henshin Dekinai: The Doomed Queen is Doomed No More

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Years ago, I was introduced to the concept of a “doomed queen” in my LGBT+ Literature class. It came in the form of Andrew Holleran’s fictional novel, Dancer From The Dance, which, if you don’t know, is sort of like an updated version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby set in New York City and Fire Island. Both works … Continue reading Henshin Dekinai: The Doomed Queen is Doomed No More
